Halloween Party Weekend!

As photos of friends clad in costumes streaming on my news feed with lots and lots of fabulous Halloween parties this weekend, I can't help wishing I could celebrate it with them. Nevertheless, allow me to greet you all a Happy Halloween!  

This Halloween party setting from Crate and Barrel inspires me to start planning a Halloween party this weekend.
